I have used trade car view on several ocassions and i haven't had any issues. Infact they have a feature called "paytrade" where if the supplier doesn't deliver the vehicle they refund your money.if you use paytrade u will eliminate your exposure to frauds. last time i checked it was around it was around 1% of the cost, which is about $60. it might be pricy for some but at least it gives you the comfort of knowing that your money is guranteed. So it's a bit inaccurate to damn the whole system cause of a few rogue traders.

I have heard similar sentiments about tradecarview. So thanks for the warning.

It looks like finally somebody got to realize there were lunatics in Africa sending hard earned $s to Japan and expecting cars on their shows. Now don't challenge me that Zambians have no faith. Talk about casting your bread on the waters!!!

in my earlier post i forget to mention that trade car view is not a vehicle supplier. it is just a platform for a multitude of suppliers to showcase their wares. That's why they strongly recommned paytrade. You will never go wrong if u use paytrade. The Problem with Zambian's is that you would rather risk $20,000 just because you don't want to pay an extra 1% for to mitigate your risk. There is nothing for free in this world, if you want that extra security then you have to bear the extra cost.


PS: I don't work for trade car view

This is why I ride my bicycle around Lusaka. This car business is too messy and damn expensive. Besides, I'd rather save my money and spend it in Zambia instead of giving it to the Japanese or Germans or whomever.

they say experience is the best teacher and cheap is expensive. tradecarview is my best i bought a car before using this site and it came very secured. the only thing you need to do is include pay trade charge which is currenly at $150 and your money will be secured. paytrade is like AM trading in Zambia. the other andvantege is you will negotiate for your car on line at a price you feel you can manage unlike other dealers/ sites. so remember to use pay trade for the security of your money.chao

I live in the State and I buy and sale cars in Zambia. I buy them through Tradecarview. Its a legitimate car dealership. As long as you pay through paytrade you will be good. You will need to read everything that's on their website so you don't get scammed otherwise go for it boyfriend.

Gentlemen,

Mwantinya! i was in a process of paying for a car from the same site, how do you involve the paytrade so as my money can be secured. I even thought of drinking up the buks in my pocket, can I invite you all instead of giving it to these said guys?

Tradecarview is just a platform where different companies advertise their cars. They don't sell cars themselves, No! So one you decide on the car you want to buy, the owners of that car will contact you directly. You will be dealing with them from then on. But as others have said, use paytrade to have a peace of mind.

Before buying make sure to get VIN number, Engine number and registration numbers. If you can, do your own checks on the history of the car with these numbers.

In the UK we can verify mileage, previous owners, outstanding finance, accident damage etc before the mechanical inspection and test drive.

Lots of vehicle exporters in UK and Japan advertise cars they don't even have in stock, using 'library' pictures and will instead ship a cheap trade-in scruffy miler of the same age and colour as the car you think you are buying. Service history and previous MOT certificates get 'lost' and the new owner receives something very different than they ordered.

Best source of cars is from the home market , which we buy our own cars from, rather than export only... London Motor Traders ltd

WELL. TRADECARVIEW CHEAT PEOPLE ON SO CALLED 'DISCOUNT ON CLEARING CHARGE. THIS IS TOTALLY NOT TRUE AND THIS IS THE ONLY BENEFIT THEY OFFER APART FROM PAYTRADE FACILITY WHICH I DON'T THINK IS WORTH FOR WHAT YOU PAY. NORMALLY JAPANESE PEOPLE ARE HONEST(REMEMBER WHEN JAPAN HAD HIT BY TSUNAMI PEOPLE COLLECTED PRECIOUS ORNAMENTS AND GAVE TO GOVT.!!). I ORDERED A CAR THROUGH TC AND I DID NOT GET A SINGLE COIN ON CLEARING CHARGE DISCOUNT AT THE PORT. NOW I HAVE ORDERED ANOTHER CAR WITHOUT TRADECARVIEW FROM THE SAME SUPPLIER WHO IS JAPANESE(I DONT THINK JAPANESE OWNS TC) AND CLEARING AGENT IS GOING TO CLEAR AT THE SAME PREVIOUS CHARGE SO I COULD SAVE ON TRADECARVIEW FEE WHICH IS SO HIGH WHEN YOU ORDER EXPENSIVE VEHICLE.

THANKS
SILAS

I heard that this tradeview joint practices the oldest trick in the car sales business. If a car selling for say, K10,000 sits on display for several weeks without a buyer, they change the price tag. They write a big K24,000, then cross it out and write 50% off @ K12,000. Raising the price by K2,000 under the pretense of a discount.
